Devil in the White City Series Adaptation Heads To Hulu

Martin Scorsese & Leonardo Dicaprio

Long-time collaborators Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese have joined forces once again for a TV adaptation of the book "The Devil in the White City" by Erik Larson.

Craig Erwich, senior vice president of originals at the streaming network, announced the news Monday at the Television Critics Assn. winter press tour in Pasadena. The book recounts the true story of Daniel H. Burnham, the genius architect behind the 1893 Chicago World's Fair, and how his incomparable world showcase would intersect with that of serial killer H.H. Holmes (real name Herman Webster Mudgett), a doctor who committed heinous crimes just blocks from the massive fair grounds. It began development at Warner Bros.in 2003, then eventually landed at Paramount, though that studio let the rights lapse twice. There were even talks that Tom Cruise would star and produce an adaptation and later Kathryn Bigelow was attached to direct and produce.

Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese are taking their Dr. H.H. Holmes project to the small screen.
